The Locket is perhaps the most mysterious and alluring pieces of jewellery. Only the wearer knows what secrets lie within the locket. It has to be the ultimate love token. During the Victorian era, young Victorian women would hide a picture of a man they admired, if the man offered up a lock of hair a marriage proposal usually would follow. Lockets were considered a statement of an intention to marry.


Our beautiful round silver locket features a wheat sheaf with a dotted border. The locket can hold two pictures. During the Victorian era a wheat sheaf represented hope of new life, it was also used to indicate the passing of a loved one due to its symbolic relationship to eternal life after death.
